Wellesley vs. Hussman

I plan to retire soon and had planned at that time to put most of my retirement savings (65%) into VWIAX (Wellesley)..The remainder will stay in a cash account (17%) and I-bonds (18%).. I plan to live off my pension, my interest income, and the dividend income from Wellesley..My thinking is that Wellesley stocks and my I bonds will keep me caught up with inflation...hopefully.....I'm wondering how Wellesley compares to a combination of Hussman (HSTRX and HSGFX) (65%/35%)..Which is most conservative/aggressive? Hussman or Wellesley??
Ideas regarding my plan are also appreciated...
